[QUOTE=DrageMester;2140418]If you want to copy files (as opposed to copying the whole partition), there’s a nice Windows Explorer extension called TeraCopy which can be used for e.g. drag-and-drop copying, and allows you to skip anything that has already been copied or only copy newer files.[/QUOTE]
I have been using this to copy alot of files from my old drive to my new one, I then check both drives for matching numbers of files & folders in windows explore, if they match that seems to mean all files got copied. I notice on occasion that everything gets copied when checking in widows explore except for one file; ie a folder with 300 files & 30 folders on my old drive to new drive; 299 files, 30 folders, this has happened a couple of times & when I went to check myself file by file, folder by folder everything was there. I went to another folder where everything was copied to my new drive, checked the folder on the new drive & noticed an odd hp video cd file & a small greyed out .tif file among the folders, I deleted this & then in windows exlore, just like the 300 files 30 folders folder, this folder now showed it had everything except 1 file, the odd ones I had just deleted, because they were not on the old drive.
Is there anyway I can verify that everything is getting copied accurately? what is going on with the occasional 1 file missed? if you can follow what I just described, is tera copy leaving odd data files after it is copying folder contents?
